  • The greatest threat to our health?

    Latest meta-analyses study that is pretty robust from BYU: Loneliness one of the greatest threats to our health... A true public health crisis and will only get worse with each generation. This is a constant struggle and I'm sure I'm not alone.. Researchers believe loneliness is so deadly because it can lead to a number of issues, including disrupted sleep patterns, high levels of stress hormones, increased inflammation, and worsening immune systems. Any one of those risk factors puts people at a greater risk for disease and life-threatening injury.

    Based on the evidence, Holt-Lunstad doesn't think the loneliness problem is going away anytime soon. The latest AARP Loneliness Study found 42.6 million adults over the age of 45 suffer from chronic loneliness. With an aging baby boomer population, that number is expected to rise in the coming decades.



    food for thought
    Research is increasingly finding that loneliness is an epidemic in many countries around the world, and technology is partly to blame.

    And that is why God gave us Dogs, if you have a dog you will never be lonely, I am sorry Myles but cats just won't do.

      greatest threat to our health? and here I thought it was a sedentary lifestyle and a poor diet. regardless if it's cats or dogs recent studies show that pet owners don't live longer than non-pet owners. there's no substitute for human interaction for which I could suggest a hundred possibilities starting with joining a charitable organization. excuses I can't help you with, Tony Robbins, et al have a cure for that

        It is all relative and it should not be taken so seriously, the studies that I have read do indeed show that pet owners are happier in their later years, and I can attest to that. That is why dogs are used at Alzheimer facilities to comfort the patients, they are also being used in hospitals to comfort the terminally ill. My mother suffered from that horrible disease and the one thing that would bring her out of that abyss was when we brought her dog to see her, her eyes would light up and seem to come alive again, there is a reason that Dog is God spelled backwards.

          LOL! And here we are - audiophiles - who primarily listen solo and you're telling us we need to have friends and social connections? What's up with that?

          It's very true. Social connections are the most important thing to keep you happy and healthy in your "golden years" for a longer life. Having a pet is better than nothing and at least if you walk your dog out around your neighborhood you'll meet some new friends. People who are married live longer, too.

                Wow and I love being alone what else am I doing wrong in my rotten stinking life. Hahaha
                for me and Neil degrasse Tyson said Ina show it's food and also erictile disfucntion and pills we take to counter it

                what a combo right. Food he said is number one as gmo is not food anyone has ever consumed on this planet
                we Eat it and feed our anaimals with it that we in turn Eat.
                Shocking as he explained it he felt nothing we do matters more than the non Food source most consume

                second he felt was taking pills to have sex later in life and for some who cannot otherwise. What a joy kill this was.
                His reasoning was simple it was going around the natural selection process. Better known for dummies like me thinning the Hurd. An old person gets ran over at a busy intersection is one sign.
                As science increases our life and its quality we are once again messing with this process

                          Not true, it is man's desire to be a carnivore which is the biggest issue for global warming, think about all that methane gas from factory farms.

                            Only the wife lives longer, she is usually younger by a few years Ha-Ha in my case 12
